After all, Rui is your guy -- he's your guy because he is the best player available at your pick. & you know he's the best player available at your pick, because... well, isn't it obvious? Because, he's your guy.

So, you know... don't get "cute." Or you might wind up in the kind of mess Danny Ainge is in. Wouldn't want that. Right, Raf?

Over in the Wall appreciation thread, I was looking at our salary next year. But, lets look at the roster -- on the assumption that things go really well -- for next year.

Lets assume that Rui becomes, as nate thinks he might, an above average starter at PF - verging on a "star" - in a couple of years. And that Troy keeps developing well & becomes a solid starter at the 3. Of course, we should be confident, at least somewhat, in the continued development of Thomas Bryant.

With all that, we'd have a pretty good starting five, right?

PG -- John Wall
SF -- Bradley Beal
SF -- Troy Brown, Jr.
PF -- Rui Hachimura
C -- Thomas Bryant

Ish will still be with us, presumably (though, really, I hope we move him for a R2 pick at the trade deadline). & Suppose both Isaac Bonga & Jemerrio Jones blossom? We have our backup PG & SF & another 1-3 guy.

We haven't talked much at all about Garrison Matthews, whom we picked up post-draft & who has really good size & shooting skills at the 2. He's a 2-way this year. Maybe by next year, he'll become our backup behind Brad Beal? Then too, we've got both Justin Robinson & Admiral Schofield to work into the mix at the 1 & 2-3.

I don't have any confidence in Mo Wagner either as a 4 or a 5. But... we will have a mid-to-high lottery pick next year. Probably buy a R2 pick as well.

Roster starting to shape up?

It's starting to shape up, but learning from past experience I'd venture to guess that Tommy Sheppard's going to have to make at least one big controversial decision to make us a legit contender. Like how Toronto fired their head coach and traded Derozan. I think that team, assuming everyone pans out is competitive, but then we'd need to go all in and do like a crazy trade where give a 3+ first round picks or something. I could be wrong though. Regardless, being a sports fan, is all about the journey.

Assuming we keep the pick whoever we select in the 2020 draft (I’m gonna assume top 10) will likely factor significantly into the rotation or possibly even start.

James Wiseman in yr1 would be a 20mpg backup C. Cole Anthony, Anthony Edwards would have to be backup guards, but boy would it be hard to keep them off the floor for at least 25-30mpg. Scottie Lewis or Deni Advija *could* start at the 3 (both are more athletic and project as better defenders than TBJ). RJ Hampton would be a microwave combo guard with good size, a Caris Levert type.

We also have just short of $20M capspace which I’d offer to Paul Millsap on a 1yr parachute deal. Can backup either PF/C or possibly even start if Hachimura is able to slide to the SF (could be an option if he displays shooting consistency sooner than expected)

Moving forward be trying to win with two veteran guards leading a group of hardworking young guys, not too dissimilar from Portland the last few years. It could go either way but at least the East is forgiving.

Yes. I think the starting 5 is rock solid. They're good enough to be a mid-tier playoff team in the 2020-21 season. I'm real high on Hachimura and Bryant panning out to be solid starters or better.

I'm not quite as confident about Troy Brown. That 68% FT% scares me. If his shot never comes around, then he might merely be a 6th/7th man type of guy playing 20-25 minutes a night backing up the 1, 2 or 3. If he becomes a 37% 3-point shooter, then he's a quality starter.

Assuming all of our non-guaranteed guys are cut (Wagner, Bonga, Robinson and Booth), and assuming we land the #6 pick or so, we will have a payroll of roughly $100M for 9 players (the starters plus Ish, Schofield, our lotto pick and the MEM 2nd). The salary cap projects to be around $117M.

It'll be interesting to see what Sheppard does with that $17M in cap room. The Ish/Sato swap this offseason suggests he is trying to maintain flexibility for 2021, which would mean we'd look for one-year deals - possibly buying picks in the process. On the other hand, if the Beal situation is unresolved, he's may want to field a strong enough team to get us back into the playoff race in the 2020/2021 season to convince Beal to resign in 2021. And that would mean using the $17M on one or two good veterans.

I think the Beal situation will dictate the rest of the Summer 2020 strategy. If Beal resigns, then we will keep our powder dry for the 2021 free agency class, and possibly look to trade Wall in the meantime. If Beal won't resign by Summer 2020, then he will be traded and we will proceed with a total rebuild.

PIF, you do a great job of getting conversations started on this board and keeping them going. And you're clearly a smart, throrough guy. But you have yet to realize that the belittling, condescending tone you often use toward others is detrimental to this online community.

You can do better…at least I hope you can.
